Recombinant Human Interleukin-21 (IL21)
|Description||IL-21 stimulates proliferation of B cell stimulated by crosslinking of the CD40 antigen. It inhibits proliferation stimulated by IL-4 plus anti-IgM. IL-21 augments stimulation of the proliferation of naive CD45RA(+) but not memory CD45R0(+) T cells mediated by engagement of CD3. IL-21 stimulates the proliferation of bone marrow progenitor cells and the expression of the natural killer cell marker CD56 in the presence of IL-15. The Interleukin-21 receptor is closely related to human IL-2 beta receptor. The receptor contains a WSXWS motif in the extracellular region, typical of type 1 cytokine receptors. The receptor is expressed on natural killer cells, T cells, and B cell line. The functional signaling complex activates Janus kinases JAK1, JAK3, and the STAT proteins STAT1, and STAT3.|
|Molecular Weight||15.0 kDa|
|Endotoxin Level||<1.0 EU/μg of recombinant protein as determined by the LAL method.|
|Purity||>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Bioactivity||The ED(50) was determined by the dose-dependent proliferation of HuT-78 Cells and was found to be <0.05ng/mL.|
|Formulation||Recombinant Interleukin-21 was lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered PBS solution pH 7.5.|
|Reconstitution||A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.|
|Storage||The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70°C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.|
|Usage||For research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.|
· Endotoxin is generally measured in Endotoxin Units per milliliter (EU/mL).
· For recombinant proteins: EU is reported per microgram of protein.
· One EU = 0.1-0.2 ng endotoxin/µg of protein.
· At abm, we do the LAL chromogenic assays that can detect down to 0.01 EU/ml.
